Grace and Frankie is giving fans a very early sneak peek at the beginning of its ending: The show’s cast will perform a live table read of its seventh and final season premiere on Thursday, April 9 at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT on the Netflix Is a Joke YouTube page.
Stars Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Sam Waterston, Martin Sheen and the rest of the ensemble will participate in the reading of the episode, titled “The Fallout,” which will be followed by a live Q&A moderated by co-creator Marta Kauffman.
